Alarms are mandatory now on radon systems
Let me start with I am very envious of the fact you have State Law that controls radon mitigators and what they do. I am tired of losing work to supposed mitigators who do not follow the rules, do not know what they are doing, are uncertified handyman, with no knowledge of building code, building envelope science, radiation protection (for their workers). They are taking money out of the pockets of my trained and certified employees and not serving our clients well (I get them as clients when radon mitigation doesn't work out)
So my questions to the group is do the current radon alarms Alarm when the radon system fails because it is cold outside, and let the homeowner know that they are being exposed to high levels of radon? From the comments i am hearing the answer is yes. So they are doing what they are supposed to! How do you change your business model to meet this new reality? Is this an opportunity profit more? Or is this a cost you must absorb driving profits down?
I am not sure from this discussion if you are more concerned about radon alarms or changing your business model to accommodate enforcement of the new rules.
Does the Ansi AARST document require insulation when piping is subject to freezing? Is this expensive and a tough upsell? My answer is maybe but i don't know your market. My market is concerned homeowners most are two income professionals who care about price tag but...... if we are doing a garage exhaust we highly recommend EPDM insulation and a self activating heat cable (if you scroll back i gave amazon link). If they do not buy it I don't send a radon tech out without them agreeing to pay for it.
